    Speed Terrane Tyre Test Results

    Velo News
    “There’s often a pretty significant difference between gravel and cyclocross tyres, but after several months of testing, it’s clear that Maxxis’s Speed Terrane tyres are exceptionally versatile.

    Maxxis didn’t skimp on cornering knobs though, and that helps the Speed Terrane perform well in everything from midweek ‘cross practices to singletrack detours. Once you lean the tyre onto these stiff knobs, the traction materializes, and allows for faster cornering than you might expect with a file tread tyre.

    The tubeless-ready casing is another key feature that encouraged us to keep riding these tyres long after the autumn. It was relatively easy to set up these tyres with some sealant on Zipp 30 Course wheels, and as such, we were spared the indignity of pinch flats on a number of occasions. The robust 120tpi casing has yet to fail us, which is also impressive given that these tyres have nearly 500 miles of wear.

    There are a few changes you need to make to get a ‘cross bike ready for gravel cruising (like gearing, perhaps), but in the case of tyres, we saw no reason to swap out the Maxxis Speed Terranes, a testament to their versatility and durability.” – Spencer Powlison, Velonews.com, March 2017




    An extremely cut-resistant and abrasion-resistant material added to the sidewalls of select mountain tires. This densely woven fabric is also lightweight and highly flexible, ensuring that the performance of the tire remains unaffected. Choose EXO Protection for exceptionally rocky, treacherous trails where the chance of sidewall cuts and abrasions is high.


    Tubeless Ready

    Tubeless downhill set-ups are a great way to shave some weight and spend more time in the bike park or shuttling hot laps on your local runs. Sealant-compatible rubber is used with the familiar Maxxis dual-ply 60 TPI downhill construction and butyl insert for support and rim protection in order to offer the benefits of increased grip and reliability. A Tubeless Ready bead securely locks to the rim and the foldable bead provides additional weight savings.
